Football: Rigobert Song is no longer the coach of Cameroon, announces Samuel Eto’o

Rigobert Song and Cameroon, it’s over. Coach of the Indomitable Lions since the start of 2022, the 47-year-old technician was in the hot seat after the elimination of his team in the round of 16 of the CAN against Nigeria. This Wednesday, Samuel Eto’o made things clear in an interview with France 24. “He has brought a lot to this team but the laws of football being what they are… We have not achieved our objectives, and our executive committee and I do not see ourselves renewing the contract” , declared the president of the Cameroonian Federation.

And continued: “I had the opportunity to discuss it with him. I have given our positions and now we must think about the future, while wishing him every success in his future career. (...) Allow me to pay a vibrant tribute to Rigobert Song who was my captain of the national team. Double African champion as a player for the Cameroon national team (2000 and 2002), Rigobert Song only won six games in 23 matches on the Lions bench, for nine defeats and eight draws. Despite a prestigious victory over Brazil (1-0), the Cameroonians left the group stage for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
